ABSTRACTION: Artist | Viewer | Dialog
Juried by Lester Johnson
“Abstraction is improvisational with layers of meaning and a search for truth. A search for self-awareness. A lyrical blending of connected memory and interpretive thoughts. Listening to your inner voice makes abstraction your reality.” – Lester Johnson
